Mark Cuban revealed how Pat Riley was a little too cocky at halftime during Game 2 of the 2011 NBA Finals.
Even Pat Riley can get things wrong from time to time, and boy did he get it wrong during the 2011 NBA Finals between the Miami Heat and the Dallas Mavericks.
Mavericks owner Mark Cuban recently revealed some interesting comments that Riley made during halftime of Game 2 which backfired tremendously on him.
Riley appeared to be spot-on with his assessment when the Heat, who were up 1-0, led 85-73 with just over seven minutes left in the fourth quarter of Game 2.
The Heat just seemed like the vastly superior team, but then the script was flipped.
The Mavericks stormed back to win the game 95-93, with Dirk Nowitzki scoring the game-winning layup.
Dirk, who won Finals MVP, outperformed the Heat's Big 3 of LeBron James, Dwyane Wade,
and Chris Bosh the rest of the way as the Mavericks pulled off one of the greatest upsets in Finals history.
